How is the circular economy being applied in our cities?
- Feb 18, 2020
In 2018, the United Nations Organisation published a report in which it estimated that by 2050, 68% of the population will live in urban areas, compared to the current 55%. In a nutshell: urban growth is set to continue, meaning therefore that the waste produced in cities and the consumption of energy and raw materials are also set to increase.
In order to address this situation, many governments are implementing circular economy models in their cities. And whilst these authorities are introducing initiatives in the streets to improve their cities’ relationships with the environment, they are not the only ones doing so.
C-VoUCHER has demonstrated its commitment to boost circular solutions in companies such as Nordphos which are working to improve the sustainability of cities. This start-up was founded with the aim of introducing new technological innovations in the water treatment sector. The idea is to ease the overcapacity of the sewage system and use this water, which is rich in nutrients, for irrigation systems.
We have compiled 8 cases of cities where the circular economy model has already been applied. Follow this link to have a look at them.
